An inquest has opened into the deaths of a couple killed when a light aircraft crashed at Hawarden Airport last Friday.
At a brief hearing in Ruthin, North East Wales coroner John Gittins formally opened the inquests into the deaths of Gary Anthony Vickers, 58, and Kaye Clarke, 43, both of Dingle Bank, Chester.
The provisional cause of death in Mr Vickers’s case was head and chest injuries, while Miss Clarke, who was a passenger in the plane, died later at the Countess of Chester Hospital of shock and haemorrhage.
Adjourning the inquests to a date to be fixed, the coroner said that investigations into the tragedy were expected to be extensive.
